Intel Extreme Masters Cologne to be the toughest tournament of the year?

Twenty-eight players will battle it out over the next couple of days in Cologne, Germany, the penultimate Intel Extreme Masters stop this season.
Five have already qualified for the US$100,000 Winner-Takes-All World Championship in March this year, the rest have their eyes on first and second place in the hopes of winning an all expenses paid ticket to Katowice, Poland alongside their share of IEM Cologne's US$25,000 prize pool and WCS points. 

Competition will be tough. Tougher than it's ever been with players sharing between them 35 first place finishes, 34 second place finishes and 49 third place finishes in premier tournaments. Take a look below at the Infographic we've prepared ahead of the competition that kicks of on Thursday 13th February at 13:00 CET over on ESL TV.
